A Quick Elizabeth Update...

Gentle Friends I got a snaperoo of Elizabeth last night - and the progress I am making....


This second medallion seems to be stitching up a bit quicker than the one below, go figure.
____________

I spent the majority of the evening cleaning brass, specifically a really old brass trash can that belonged to my grandfather and sat in his little library, and was another piece I had sent out here from my mom's.  I have never seen it not completely dull with tarnish, but I am determined to get it cleaned up.  I will show a before and after snap once I have it done.  For all the time I put into rubbing and polishing off decades of tarnish I am only about a 1/4 of the way to the finish

That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

Great progress, Edgar!

Elizabeth is coming along nicely. I love to see "status shots" of people's projects. Oh, I don't envy you with regards to the polishing. I have inherited several pieces of my great-grandmother's silver and it really needs some TLC!

I do love Elizabeth!! Good for you for restoring a nice old piece of brass!! In case you need to do any future polishing I can recommend Semi Chrome Polish. I polish lots of antique brass and copper. It will be worth the effort.

Elizabeth looks wonderful! Polishing that brass can sounds challenging. Good luck with it!

Beautiful stitching.
Just think of the muscles you are building by polishing that brass!
:o)

Elizabeth is growing lovely.
I am smiling Edgar as i had this vision of a genie popping up after all your brass rubbing and saying 'just one wish Edgar, what'll it be?'
